Oh, hey, lovely, my web host is getting hit by a DDoS attack, just in time for the new school year. Yay!

(This isn't too bad. At first I thought my school had ramped up their blocking policy. )

I have mentally been so ready for the school year to start, but after spending much of yesterday setting my lab back up from summer cleaning my body is telling me that perhaps I should have been more active.

Always look for
helpers, he said
on the small screen
in a gentle voice,
and I believed it
to be true.

who needs your help
when the world's upside down.
Sometimes,
it's you.

Whelp, I am tired, grumpy, lonely, miss my wife immeasurably, and am out of coffee ice cream.

Not all of those problems are of equal importance, but I'm going to point an LCD projector at my bedroom ceiling and beam YouTube videos to it over a Chromecast while I fall asleep. That might help a little.

Goodnight.
